If you are depressed, your GP may be the first person you turn to for help.
You can help your GP make a quick diagnosis by telling them directly that you think you are suffering from depression. Some GPs are more comfortable dealing with depression than others.
You can find a GP in your area by searching the directory available on the Health Direct website, a government service that provides free health advice for Australians www.healthdirect.gov.au/australian-health-services.
If you are not happy with your GP, do not hesitate to get help from another one. You are the consumer and should expect the best possible service.
